Handcrafted in Tokoname, Aichi prefecture Japan, this Mogake style yunomi teacup was made with gyokuro and light steamed asamushi sencha brewing in mind. The Japanese cermamic teacup was wrapped with seaweed, causing the salt from the seaweed to oxidize with the clay making a unique pattern on the teapot. This cup matches our Mogake shiboridashi, Mogake Hōhin, and Mogake yuzamashi water cooler perfectly.
